I acknowledge the Wurundjeri clan of the Woiwurrung nation, one of the five Kulin Nations of central Victoria, as the original and traditional owners of this unceded land on which I live and work. I pay respect to their people and their elders past, present and emerging and those who have left us now in the Dreamtime.
